Christmas Wishes

Mike Saylor was recently diagnosed with throat cancer.  He has just finished the first of seven weeks of daily radiation and weekly chemotherapy.  His wife, Karen Mabry, had a brain tumor removed at the beginning of the year, so 2017 has been a tough year for them.  They just keep going and coping . . . but a little help would really help.

Mike's course of treatment will mean that by Christmas, he'll be in the middle of the worst of it.  They're facing an extended period when Mike will be unable to work.  We hope to make those dark days and their Christmas a little brighter by taking away some of the financial worries, raising the funds to pay Mike's medical insurance deductible, and making it easier for them to focus on the truly important things.

Please help.  Mike and Karen would never ask for your help, but they are always the first to offer to help when someone else needs it.  Please post photographs and comments to cheer and support them - anything that will make them smile when they see this.  Please share this appeal with as many friends and acquaintances as possible, as soon as possible, in as many ways as possible . . . Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, email....

Please join us in sending  Mike and Karen "good tidings of comfort and joy" for Christmas.
